Review: The Legend Of Zelda: The Minish Cap (Game Boy Advance)
Many, many, many, many (etc, etc) years ago, Hyrule was in a bad way. The land was overrun by monsters, and trouble was afoot everywhere. Then, in humanity’s hour of need, the tiny Picori came, bringing magic to the world, in the form of The Light Force, source of magic, and The Picori Blade, which the Hero Of Men used to drive back the monsters. Once the hordes were defeated, the people enshrined the sword, keeping it as a totem to protect the land from monsters. Flash forward to the present day, and Hyrule is a peaceful, prosperous land, celebrating the annual Picori Festival, when the people of Hyrule commemorate their saviors with a party of epic proportions. Street markets, entertainers, and a famous swordsmanship contest, where the winner earns the right to touch the legendary Picori Blade. This year’s celebration marks an even greater anniversary: For, according to legend, every thousand years the doorway between the Picori and Human worlds opens, and now is that time.
